The doctor introduces my name is zuhran.rnMy doctor wants to ask a question 6 years ago I had an incident where my thumb was cut off by a sharp object, but less than a quarter of my fingernail was deformed. What I want to ask!! Can it be reconnected while the finger pieces are gone? The reason I want to connect it is because I find it difficult to work without my thumb. Please can it be perfected even though it’s not as perfect as the original. Please answer.

Hello, Zuhran, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.

Part of the body that is cut off from its place is called an amputation event. Amputation can be a medical action for therapy (for example in people with severe injuries to the fingertips, damaged blood vessels, to infection) or it can be due to accidents. In accidental finger amputations, the severed part of the finger must be immediately stored in a tightly closed plastic bag filled with ice water so that it can be reattached.

Meanwhile, in your case where the amputation occurred 6 years ago and the severed part has disappeared, it is better to consult an orthopedic or plastic surgeon for this problem. The doctor will assess how well the remaining finger functions, blood vessels, innervation, and the possibility of reconstruction of your finger.

The following is an article about amputation, which can be read to add references.

That's it, I hope it's useful.

Regards, dr. Sarah Rizqia.
